Fencing and concrete barriers are back in place around the U.S. Capitol in D.C. in anticipation of the Justice for J6 rally scheduled for this Saturday. In addition, D.C. and Capitol Police say they are "all hands on deck" for the rally.

The Justice for J6 rally is in support of those who stormed the Capitol building on January 6th of this year. They want to protest the ongoing criminal cases against those charged in the events that took place that day.

A spokesperson for the FBI says at this time there is no credible evidence suggesting that violence is being planned for Saturday, but that police should still be prepared for whatever may happen.

The barriers were being set up starting Wednesday night and are expected to be fully up sometime Thursday morning.

Officials hope that the fencing and barriers will be removed shortly after the event on Saturday. The barriers that went up following the incident in January remained in place all the way until July.
